the grass ain’t always greener in someone else’s eyes…

 

“The Woman I’m Not”

I guess clumsy is no longer cute

And I guess I don’t look like I used to

I’ve tried a couple ways to get your attention

A couple feet away, you won’t even look in my direction

 

You’re lookin around the room

I’m just a memory you’re looking through

You don’t want what you’ve got

You’re just looking for a woman 

The woman I’m not

*

I guess love is a fickled thing

How did you fall in, then fall out so easily

You say you can’t help it, but I think you can

It started on that day you wouldn’t take my hand

 

I saw you on the street

She doesn’t look a thing like me

Guess you got what you want 

You found a woman

She’s everything I’m not

*

With a night out I dried my tears

Down in Mexico I got back all those years

I drove to California in that ’65

Went to New Orleans never felt so alive 

*

Oh what a surprise

The grass ain’t always greener in someone else’s eyes

Now you’ve come around lookin for what you’ve lost

Cause now you don’t want

Any woman I’m not
